Love it!

My husband and I both use this carrier and we love it. Our son is 5 months old and just now fits better in it, but it is so supportive and feels so much better on my back than the other carriers do.

mom keeps stealing my MC Carrier!

Although my wife was apprehensive about purchasing this carrier in the beginning, I now spot her using it all the time! Best Choice for carriers in our book. Our little man is always comfy and happy when going for a ride.

Must have for tactical Dads!

Shipping was very fast, only took 2-3 days. Purchased the Carrier and the Daypack Zip to attach to the back of the carrier. Has the great quality, functionality, and durability you'd expect when buying tactical gear. This makes me especially happy because I know it will hold up for multiple children and this is our first child. Love these products, once the kids outgrow it I will still use the daypack zip as a tactical backpack, so comfortable

Most comfortable baby carrier ever

I had been looking to get this for a while but pushed it off due to deployment. Then, I injured my back pretty severely and was taken off the deployment so I had to get a carrier that was good for me. This carrier actually helps to make my son feel lighter. I have worn him around Disney world the past couple days. He loves it and my back isn’t in the pain it normally would be holding him. It’s super comfortable. Even my wife loves wearing it
